(Em) C All you champions of science and rulers of men, Em C Can you summon the sun from its sleep Em C Does the earth seek your counsel on how fast to spin Em C Can you shut up the gates of the deep D Am6 Don’t you know that all things hang, as if by a string, Em A7 O’er the darkness, poised to fall? C B11 Em If there’s one thing I know in this life: we are beggars all. Em C All you big shots that swagger and stride with conceit, Em C Did you devise how your frame would be formed Em C If you’d be raised in a palace, or live out in the streets, Em C Did you choose the place or the hour you’d be born D Am6 Tell me what can you claim? Not a thing, not your name Em A7 C Tell me if you can recall just one thing, B11 That’s not a gift in this life Am Can you hear what’s been said B11 Em A7 Can you see now that everything’s grace after all C B11 Em If there’s one thing I know in this life: we are beggars all.
